According to Dimension Data’s annual Network Barometer Report, the remote monitoring and automated management reduces the time to troubleshoot faulty networking devices by a massive 75%. Consequently, it takes 32% less time to repair such devices than those not managed in this way. Furthermore, this year’s research again shows a strong correlation between the failures caused by devices and their lifecycle stage.
According to the report, networks have continued to age for the fifth consecutive year, making 53% of the over 70,000 technology devices that were analyzed either ageing or obsolete – up by two percentage points since last year. There’s also been a slight drop in the percentage of obsolete devices – down to 9% from last year’s 11% – while the percentage of ageing devices has increased by four points. The percentage of the current devices analyzed is at its lowest in three years.
